SIMMONS & SIMMONS

Comment: This firm is respected in Frankfurt and gained two experienced financing experts last year: partner Dr. Benedikt Weiser came from Dechert and specializes in the legal structuring of investment funds. Dr. Werner Meier, formerly of King & Spalding, is a bank lending specialist. Both will be active in Frankfurt and London. These are logical additions, as the firm is advising its clients on financing with regard to Brexit, often bringing in the expertise of London colleagues. The corporate lawyers, more strongly based in Düsseldorf and Munich, work often with capital markets lawyers in Frankfurt and are benefiting from the expansion of the financing practice.
